Hi, I'm trying to share my iTunes library with another user on the same Mac.

The library is on an external drive named "Big Disk" and the library has the following path:

/Volumes/Big Disk/Music/iTunes

So I've set up a share named "iTunes"
/Volumes/Big Disk/Music/iTunes

Owner, Group and Everyone have r/w permissions
AFS and SMB sharing enabled

But when I try to access the iTunes library using the other user account I get an error: ""The iTunes Library file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file."

I'm sure I'm missing a simple step - but any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Do you have ignore permissions turned on for the "Big Disk"?

I didn't but I do now - does that mean that other users will have full access to everything on Big Disk?

Also the other user can now load the iTunes library, but I can't load it from my user login at the same time. Can the library not be simultaneously shared?

Many thanks for your help - and Happy New Year Smile

I don't think you can have the library open with two instances of iTunes at the same time.
